My identical twin brother, Thomas Hayden Blanchard, passed away on April 7, 2014. He was 33.
Hayden made a huge wave and touched the hearts of thousands during his short time here on Earth. He will forever be known as a hero – both to myself and to many more.
Still, the sad truth is that, if left to simple oral history, even the most cherished stories and memories will fade over time. Hayden’s son, Thomas, was only 4 months old when his father passed away. I will not let Hayden’s premature death prevent Thomas from knowing his father and understanding the impact he had on the lives of others.
Hayden, just like your loved ones, should not be forgotten, and that’s why I created alwaysMe: for Thomas, for Hayden, for me, and for you.
Memories fade, pictures don’t.
